Publishing A Shrug of the Shoulders by Elaine Cockrell
Today, we are proud to publish Elaine Cockrell's debut historical novel, A Shrug of the Shoulders, an epic family drama concerning the internment of Japanese Americans throughout the Pacific Northwest.
David Guterson, author of the acclaimed Snow Falling on Cedars, wrote of Elaine's book, "A Shrug of the Shoulders does readers a service by rendering in dramatic terms the era of Japanese-American relocation that unfolded during World War II. I'm glad to see it in print because it serves as a reminder of this period in our history and therefore increases the odds that we will not allow ourselves again, as a nation, to act on prejudice."
History buffs will especially appreciate this meticulously researched and superbly crafted work. Thank you for supporting independent publishing and enjoy!
